Romney's supporters are mean and have gotten meaner since the first debate.  

My cousin is 20, attends Post University in Waterbury,CT.  I've know her since she was born and I've enjoyed watching her grow into a very politically aware young adult.  She was inspired by Obama when she heard him speak at Weslyan University's Commencement back in 2008.  She's looking forward to voting for Obama as her first vote in a Presidential Election.

Last week, the day after the debate, she went to her car parked in Waterbury and saw this nasty note attached:
romney note2

If you can't make out the text, it says:

"Dear driver,
I would like to inform you that someone vandalized your car by placing an Obama sticker on it.  You need to remove it as soon as you can before people begin to think that you are an idiot.  
This is not surprising, but it's extremely rude.  I live in a swing state, so I often encounter Romney stickers (and George Allen stickers, McCain & Bush stickers in the past).  Sometimes I grit my teeth a little, sometimes I even silently curse to myself.  

But I would never leave a note or mess with a sticker or anything like that.  

Has anything like this happened to you?  If so, please post a comment about it here.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
